Gas Processing & LNG is Produced by Gulf Publishing Holdings LLC



U.S. Industry Metrics

On November 4, the thousandth LNG export cargo was shipped from the U.S. since the start of LNG exports from the Lower 48 States in February 2016. An estimated 3.42 Tft3 of natural gas have been exported as LNG from the U.S. between February 2016 and early November 2019. The so-called “second wave” of LNG projects in the country includes 14 terminals worth a collective $118.4 B. The vast majority of the projects are located along the Gulf Coast. U.S. LNG production capacity is estimated at 8.9 Bft3d at the end of 2019, representing more than twice the liquefaction capacity of 3.6 Bft3d in place at the end of 2018. GP

Corrosion Control for Gas Treating Amines: Technology Leads to Increased Amine Unit Efficiency

Register Now

Accelerated basin drilling activities combined with increased fugitive gas emission capture technologies have increased trace oxygen levels in midstream natural gas. Oxygen present in concentrations even as low 30-50 ppm will cause costly corrosion-related problems in plant operations and processing equipment. One area in the plant most affected by oxygen is the amine unit. Oxygen will degrade MDEA-blended amines to corrosive amino acids and heat-stable amine salts.

Learn how a new technology from BASF combined with innovation from Nalco Water can increase amine efficiency and reduce costs associated with corrosion. This new technology will inhibit the degradation of amines from oxygen attack and control corrosion in process gas, while stabilizing the amine from degradation into bicine and other heat-stable amine salts. Together with Nalco Water’s real-time amine corrosion control program, have been proven to both mitigate oxygen degradation of amine and reduce the overall corrosivity of amine units.
